The Duke of Blood • a Regency Novel
Etienne Thévenet, the mysterious Duke of Valois, is a man of many secrets- so perhaps London will be a good place for him to start over.
Unfortunately, as soon as he arrives from Italy with his loyal valet, English society closes around him like a trap- desperate debutantes, matchmaking mamas, and what the English attempt to pass off as "high fashion".
Worst of all, the formidable and beautiful Duchess de Camerino, wife of his arch-nemesis, is already waiting in London to ruin his life one elegant ball at a time.
If Valois hopes to survive the Duchess's schemes, he'll need the help of a sarcastic debutante, an adventurous spinster, an Earl's heir full of bad ideas- and of course, his stalwart valet Bastiano.
